About The Guest:

Eddie Penney began his professional career opting to work in service to his country in the United States Marine Corps where he received foundational tactical training and taught as an urban terrain instructor specializing in creating calm reactions in the face of emergencies. Once his initial tour of duty was accomplished he enlisted into the United States Navy and completed SEAL training initially joining Seal Team 2. After five years of exemplary service including two active duty deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, Eddie was promoted to SEAL Team 6 where he served an additional 7 years. He completed 5 additional deployments in Iraq, Afghanistan and Africa while performing hundreds of operations including: Direct Action Ops, Medical Evacuations, Executive Protection, Security Advances and Surveillance. His leadership roles during this time were that of Assault Troop Lead Breacher, Troop Leading Petty Officer, Command Breacher, Training Lead Petty Officer and Battlefield Interrogator. When Eddie’s tours of duty were concluded he still desired to give back to his country and spent time training the next generation of Navy SEALs for operational duty overseas in hostile environments.

During his 20 years as a combat veteran and Navy SEAL Eddie has had extensive training and experience with unique and unconventional methods in security that produce results. With his experience and knowledge, he founded and now operates Contingent Group, which is a risk mitigation company that bases their security techniques on each client’s particular needs.
